This is a great purchase, I purchased it in 2015. It stopped working, and I assumed it needed a battery in the piece that goes outdoors, so I went online and replaced it. Still a short, I even went to home depot to replace the whole thing, but they didn't have exact one in stock. I then had a thought, this is wireless so the indoor part may take batteries; not remembering that I put them in when i first purchased. Well Well well, all the thing needed was the batteries replaced and it works like new!!!! It wasn't a short, it just needed batteries

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Dtoolman Okay if you want 1 that doesn't work properly.
Purchased this doorbell/chime. The best thing about it is that you can yse any mp3 chime you want. But in my opinion it is junk. Since we have had it (going on 2yrs or so now), the button has to be pressed just right or will not work. The battery in remote takes a while to run down, and the ones in the base will stop working and you have no idea they are dead.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer wireless capacity needs work
Concept is great. having a choice of rotating door bell tunes, being able to have an image on the inside portion. However, I have your basic wireless router with the phone company at a low speed and the doorbell was too far from the router for me to get it to work. I will try again when better service comes to our neighborhood. I also wonder how many wireless devices I can have in the house at the same time.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by bc95 Pretty neat fun easy to install nice looking
This is pretty neat as you can preload any mp3 file you want. Can change the door chime to play holiday music for any occasion. The best part is you can load your favorite teams fight songs to play on game day . The cover is white but paintable or you can just print a theme on your printer then use double sided tape to hold it to the cover. Not much information in the box about how to do this so it is trial & error. I have a friend with a sign shop so I will have him print themes on decals for me. Completely wireless so very easy to install just load your music install batteries and your ready to go.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Mastadruma Unique Door Chime for the Modern Home
Heath Zenith has created a genius way to enjoy the announcement that someone is at your door! Forget the standard "Ding-Dong" chime! You can now use whatever song you want!
Take any MP3 song that you want and drag it onto the door chime via UPS cord (Supplied) and that's it! Throw in 3 "C" batteries and screw the bracket to your wall. The wireless transmitter (door bell button) has double sided tape.
I recommend that you use a program like Gold Wave to trim your favorite song so that you don't have to listen to the entire song when the button is pressed. There is no way to cut it off or cut it short.
The housing is built very well. It's nice and solid. The chime has 3 loudness settings. Even on the loudest setting, the speaker doesn't distort. It's a quality piece.
Easy to setup. Easy to program. The range isn't very good when trying to mount it behind a wall. It really does need line of sight. I tried to install this in my lower level of my home (it's a split level) and I didn't have any luck. I had to mount it on the inside wall, behind my door.
Overall, I recommend this MP3 programmable door chime over any standard bell any day! Get creative!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CarterB Innovative idea. Easy to set up.
This product is intriguing in that you get ultimate control over what your doorbell sounds like, whether you want a particular chime or a song melody. The storage space on the doorbell's hard drive is ample enough that you can change through different sounds whenever you'd like. I have about 20 custom song bits on there now (grew tired adding more); it's easy to cycle through the songs with a button push. Volume can also be adjusted.
The main drawback is an extremely short range of wireless connectivity. I could only get the button to set off the doorbell from within about 10 feet. So forget about any other creative options. I wanted to place the button at the bottom of our front stairs with the chime inside but instead set it up for the back door due to the limited range.
Adding the mp3s is easy. The strange thing is the manual tells you to refer to their website for mp3 editing. The website simply says to find a free mp3 editor online. It recommends using a song length less than 20 seconds.
The Skin It idea is interesting and there are tons available scaled for this particular item. It would be nice if a code was included for one or two free skins though.
Mounting the hardware is also easy and like any other wireless doorbell.
Customization/creativity: 4 stars.
Functionality (limited range): 2 stars
